About the Program

The Washington University (WashU) Recovery group is housed within the Health Promotion Department. The group has a separate, private, 24/7 dedicated space for students to meet both formally and informally. The space is furnished with a conference table, lounge furniture, television, microwave, mini-fridge, books, yoga mats, exercise balls, games, snacks, and more. This space is the location of weekly group meetings, walk-in hours, and substance-free, social activities. The WashU Recovery group is not a recovery program, but it is a resource that students can add to their support system while attending the university. The group is open to any undergraduate or graduate student currently in recovery from substance use or any student who is interested in recovery/abstinence. Weekly meetings consist of approximately 8-15 students. Attendance is not mandatory for the group, but strongly encouraged to help build relationships and establish strong support systems on campus. Students can join at any point during the academic year. Students interested in learning more are asked to email recovery@wustl.edu.

A collegiate recovery program (CRP) is a College or University-provided, supportive environment within the campus culture that reinforces the decision to engage in a lifestyle of recovery from substance use. It is designed to provide an educational opportunity alongside recovery support to ensure that students do not have to sacrifice one for the other.
